You need to be interested in people, and want to help them. Interests in Creative Arts can help as well as having a degree in Social Studies and having plenty of work experience.

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Celtic Pure Creates New Jobs for Monaghan

The Irish mineral water company Celtic Pure have unveiled plans for their €5m new bottling facility. The Celtic Pure plant, located on the outskirts of Corcreagh in Monaghan, will create up to 60 new jobs during the construction phase of the expansion, as well as 25 new jobs when the facility is operational.

There are currently 50 people employed at the plant.

Chief Executive of Celtic Pure, Padraig McEneaney said, "The investment in our facilities will further create 25 + new jobs, increase our annual production capacity by 65% and see our annual turnover rise twofold by 2017.

"Our target is to bring the business to the stage where we can target sales of €18 million to €20 million. We’ve come a long way since 2000, with only two employees, supplying local customers with water in 5 litre drums."

The company sold record volumes of bottled water last year in Ireland and worldwide through indirect exportation to China, United Arab Emirates, USA and Australia.
